I’ve actually been revisiting my characters to give them a bit more depth with their emotions and the events that drive them.  I’m drawn to flawed characters that tend to be underdogs and people underestimate them until they have a chance to step into their full potential.  My villains are the heroes of their own stories.  In their mind, they are the one who has been wronged and feels completely justified in their actions.  Some have an element or two of redemption, others are far past that point.  My characters live in a gray area – good people can do bad things and bad people can do good things.
